“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” – Charles William Eliot
International Literacy Day is celebrated on the 8th of September across the world. Founded by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the intention behind the day is to highlight the significance of literacy as an essential human right, and to further the literacy agenda to create a more informed and sustainable society.
As the population is increasing, the illiteracy rate is increasing as well, with over 100 million people across the globe lacking basic literacy skills. The purpose of literacy day is to tackle this growing concern with the objective of ensuring every person in the world can read and write.
As an internationally renowned publishing house, Austin Macauley Publishers is playing its essential role in eradicating illiteracy. We have a wide range of educational books for people of all ages, providing the tools to become informed and educated in the literary world.
Below are a few books to add to your bookshelf this International Literacy Day to elevate your knowledge on different topics!
